Thank you Jamie Losty!

We here at Jacinta’s Smile would like to thank Jamie Losty for running the VHI Women’s Mini-Marathon on behalf of Jacinta’s Smile. Pictured below is Jamie with her dog Pippa who also ran 10k. Not bad for a ten year old dog!

Both Jamie and Pippa ran 10 K in the VHI Women’s Mini Marathon 2020.

Jamie also understands what it is like to lose a sibling. She says:

“It’s been a huge struggle since losing Anthony following his accident abroad in 2018. It’s something you never think could happen to you. Every single aspect of my life has changed since. I struggled to find support during some really tough days. The tough days still come but I have developed better coping skills, over time, to help me. I only recently became aware of Jacinta’s Smile and the work that you do. I was very happy to fundraise for your support services by doing the Mini Marathon. As I struggled to find the right support services, I hope that I can help someone else in a situation I wouldn’t wish on anyone. Anthony has left me with a very different outlook on life and an appreciation of how delicate life can be. He is remembered every day by those closest to him.”
